Apartment Fire in West Hempfield

On Sunday, February 27th, shortly after 1900 hours Tower 67 was alerted to the 3600 block of Orkney Road in West Hempfield for an apartment fire. Assistant Chief 7 (Mountville Fire Company) arrived and reported fire venting from a rear window on the second floor of a two-story, multi-family dwelling. While the engine companies worked to control the fire, Tower 67 was assigned to go to the roof for vertical ventilation, ladder the building, and later, provided positive pressure ventilation of several apartments. Tower 67 operated for just under an hour before returning to service.
